How do architectures work in business?
A business architecture represents a complete and multi-perspective view of a business function such as: capabilities, value delivery, information, organizational structure; and the relationships among these business views and strategies, products, policies, initiatives, and stakeholders. Architectures are best used to tie together strategy and execution.
What does an architecture look like?
While there are many different approaches, Take2 prefers to deliver architectural descriptions (presentations and documents) to stakeholders, and architectural models in network form to support downstream decision support. In systems thinking, the best way to describe a system is via a network. Networks, or graphs, are also used in modern machine learning models. We provide our clients with cutting edge products that support understanding today, and cutting edge decision support products on the horizon.
What does it take to build a business architecture?
Take2 starts with an business function audit. Our interviews and in person observations may be repeated more often than a standard audit, as we iterate with stakeholders while we design the architecture. The architecture can be a documentation of the as is state, or it can be an architecture of the to be state. Either way, you will have a systems view of your function, with the tools to support modern data driven decision making.
